You deserve clean water...

We're giving it to you.

In 2017, as a result of improved water quality in the upper Bay largely due to the success of CSO Phases I & II, the RIDEM removed the rain restrictions to shellfishing in Conditional Area B and relaxed the restrictions in Conditional Area A. In addition, bathing beach closures have decreased dramatically since 2014.

Phase III facilities as originally designed included another deep rock tunnel through Pawtucket and Central Falls, terminating at the Bucklin Point Wastewater Treatment Facility. In response to the USEPA's recent guidance documents on affordability and integrated planning, the NBC undertook a re-evaluation of Phase III in 2013, convening a group of stakeholders to provide review and input. The project was approved by the RIDEM in 2018, with construction on various components slated to begin as early as 2020. Learn more about the Combined Sewer Overflow Project!

Under virtually every street in the NBC service area is a sewer pipe that carries away unwanted wastewater from homes, schools, businesses and industries to one of the Narragansett Bay Commission's two wastewater treatment facilities - the Field's Point facility in Providence, and the Bucklin Point facility in East Providence.
